New book, 358 pages. Over 100,000 Australians have laid down their lives in the service of their country during the past 100 years. Conflicts including the two world wars, Korea and Vietnam have been fought by young men and women from every state in the country. This book explores the nature of combat from the perspective of the men doing the actual fighting. From the heights of Gallipoli to the trenches of the Western Front, from the deserts of North Africa to the jungle POW camps of the Thai-Burma Railway, from the savage cold of a Korean winter to the steamy heat of Vietnam, this book details what it's really like to be in the line of fire. It also reveals the experiences of Australian women at war, as well as the combat photographs who did so much to document the realities of the front line.
